The statutory consultation on Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) in East Ayrshire Council is now open.

Education authorities have a statutory duty under the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 to consult with a representative group of parents and carers with children under school age in their area about how they should make ELC available.

Consultation

The consultation will be open for three weeks from Tuesday 31 May until Tuesday 21 June 2022.

How to comment

We have created two surveys for parents, carers and prospective parents and carers residing in East Ayrshire in order to hear their views on ELC in our authority.

The views of parents and carers are important to us and will be used to inform the future delivery of ELC in East Ayrshire.

We will also be seeking the views of children as part of the statutory consultation. If you would like more information please contact EarlyYears-Admin@east-ayrshire.gov.uk.
